Montblanc’s Secret Adornment Is A Testament To Modern Craftsmanship
Montblanc is now offering its customers and loyal fans a new form of personalization, that uses the inner part of a Sfumato leather briefcase flap as a canvas for artistic expression.
Boasting with contemporary tattoo artwork, Montblanc’s Secret Adornment looks beautifully and exudes classic elegance on the outside; but once you open the briefcase, you will notice the owner’s personal expression, with his taste and preferences accompanying him everywhere.
Only visible on the inner part of Montblanc briefcases, the Secret Adornment shows off a fine tattoo craftsmanship, that’s possibly a bit extravagant, and super exclusive, as only 30 briefcases like this will be delivered, each of them featuring the owner’s initials as part of the hand-tattooed design.
Tattoos have been used since ancient times as amulets or talismans, so it should not come as a surprise that Montblanc chose the Art of Tattoo as the first precious handcraft to be staged inside its briefcases.
Mo Coppoletta, an Italian artist based in London, was Montblanc’s choice for this special project, and the masterful artist hand-etched every leather piece individually using genuine Montblanc ink.
By this time, three different Secret Adornment creations have benefited from the artist’s amazing talent and skill, all inspired by Montblanc’s 110th year heritage, with the most elaborate artwork being represented by the world map, a reference to the Maison’s appeal and presence in more than 120 countries.
